As a celebrated singer/songwriter and kirtan artist, Darren Marc has performed nationally and internationally. His most recent album release, Let It Shine, is garnering praise across the media. He has had over 30 song placements in film and television on various prominent TV networks, including MTV, VH1, ETV, and CBS. The placement of ‘Whole Lot of Love’ from his Drive E.P on MTV's The Real World earned him a submission for grammy consideration in 4 categories: Best Male Pop Artist, Best Male Pop Performance, Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, and Best Song Written For A Motion Picture, Television, Or Other Visual Media. He now dedicates his musical path to serving others through the heart-opening path of Kirtan and Bhakti inspired workshops.
Let It Shine is packed full of uplifting, enlightening frequencies and lyrical substance backed by a sweet, James Taylor-esque, organic, acoustic fueled soundscape. From the faster tempos to the slower piano ballads, Darren Marc shows versatility in his song crafting. But even when the song is sonically more mellow, Darren still packs a profoundly positive message into his compassionate, soul resonating vocal work. - Joshua Smotherman (MTM Music)
